Sunday Steals: Joie Celia Poncho Sweater for Less

Dolls, in the left corner we have Joie’s très chic Celia Poncho Sweater; in the right corner we have ModCloth’s luscious Long Flight Sweater.

Though ModCloth’s magnificent creation is quite a bit thinner, and constructed out of a mix of polyester and cotton, as opposed to the cashmere of the Joie treasure; for just $42.00, in comparison to the $274.00 price tag of its couture cousin, it is every bit as capable of helping one to create that effortlessly chic style we all strive for – at a price that is oh-so alluring for the frugalista!

Your turn loves…will you be thrifty or suckered into putting on your spendthrift cap?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Shopbop and ModCloth for the pictures.

kind of digging the Mod cloth one. Isn't it great that the CA weather is letting us wear fall fashion so early! YES!

I am seriously loving this and I love the Modcloth one like none other. I think sweater capes are on the list for all French Women Wannabes (aka me).

I don't think I'd mind having it thinner. Especially, if you work inside. It would be great to have at the office. I'd go for ModCloth.

Thrifty for me. I like the light weight.

Such a cool color. A very sweet poncho. ModCloth would be my choice.

Rae said...

Modcloth is one of my favorites! Love it!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Hmm, I might actually put on the spendiecap for this one. For cashmere, I would do a lot of things.

Sarah said...

I'm not a huge poncho fan, but the Joie one is stunning!

Both of those are gorgeous! I do love cashmere, but Modcloth is wonderful as well!

For this I have to say ModCloth wins. It just looks softer.

Anything comes from ModCloth is always a big fat "yes"

Barttart said...

I actually just got a cowl neck sweater just like this from Forever21 for $24.00! Whohoo

MarchMusings said...

I might look for it in a brighter colour since my closet has too much grey and black. But I love the silhouette

ryan said...

For this one I love the more expensive Joie's one, it's stunning! I love ModCloth too but the Joie's is so beautiful

Lady Sophia's Lover said...

g l a m o u r !!! das modell.

thanks.

Kayla said...

I think it's a great idea to get the Modcloth version and then if you wear the hell out of it take the plunge and invest in the Joie top. I love everything Joie does too.

Like this jumper, it is perfect for fall.

Anaiz said...

I'm liking the Joie one more (cashmere!) I'd spend $274 for it :D

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Ahh, my friend has THE biggest obsession with ModCloth. Maybe I should show her this shirt?

(Then I could steal it from her? I'm brilliant, I know.)

Its Good but not soooooooooo.... I didn't like, good there must be something which should be so so...

Sarah @ Pandora's Box said...

God I love Modclothing... I wish I could own everything in their store!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I think I would go the Joie way, both cute but again, I think Fall clothes are investments and that's a good price for a quality item for years to come!

Schnappy said...

Oh, I love this poncho, very sweet! :)
I wait for you on my blog! Have a nice day!

Sarade said...

I am always looking for sweaters in the perfect shade of greige. Thanks for sharing!

Keith said...

I love the ModCloth one. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Take care.

Sara Bentley @ Purses Pastries Etc... said...

These are both such glamorous pieces! But I don't think I can turn my back to cashmere... I'd love to be wearing it right now!!

Maddy said...

I happen to like the ModCloth version much better, though I'm sure the Joie poncho feels luxurious!

Melissa Blake said...

Great find, Erika!

Rachel said...

Although I'm sure the cashmere of the Joie version is amazing, I think I like the ModCloth one better!

The Owl's Closet said...

Aah, LOVE this! It's like you read my mind:) Hope you enjoyed the weekend!

Leeta said...

I don't think I would rock either (my tiny frame coupled with my short stature would be swallowed up) but I bet that cashmere feels amazing. If I were to buy something like this, I feel as thought I would wear it more for outerwear anyway versus all day inside.

Dee O. said...

I love this sweater! It's adorable :)

That GOOD GOOD Blog

fashion trends said...

Really affordable! Can't tell the difference between the two and I must admit in some of the comparisons you post, I can.

LIFESTYLE said...

Modcloth is my best choice. It looks comfortable and fresh to wear. I like also its color. Thanks and keep it up!

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Ohhh tough one. I always adore cashmere and this joie creation is divine, but I am also swooning over the ModCloth version!!
